Rogue River, Klamath River, Upper Sacramento and McCloud River Fly Fishing Report

Rogue River, Klamath River, Upper Sacramento and McCloud River Fly Fishing Report

Rick Cox Reports on 10.7.2019

Our Wild Waters Fly Fishing guides have been super busy burning the miles and taking advantage of all the current opportunities that are presenting themselves. Fall is such a great opportunistic time to sample the many rivers near us. The Rogue River has had an excellent return of summer steelhead and the fall/winter fish are just starting to arrive. We have been doing beats from the dam down to TouVelle Park and finding fish. Chrome has also been giving us a good year on the Klamath with an outstanding run of half pounders mixed in with adults. Both of these rivers will only improve as we get into the rest of Fall and when we start getting rain. The Lower Sacramento continues to be just a solid choice for those wanting a day in the boat chasing the big rainbows that the river offers. The salmon are spawning now and the trout menu is all about gobbling eggs. The McCloud has seen crowded on the weekends but mid week has been much quieter as far as crowds. We have been seeing an outstanding year for the October Caddis and the big Stimulators and Chubbys have been the ticket. It closes on the 15th and the browns are beginning their spawning so caution when wading, give the redds a wide birth. The Upper Sacramento, which stays open all year, has been giving up some large fish and is fishing well from Ney Springs to Delta. The October Caddis seem more prevalent from Dunsmuir up to Ney so if you want to throw big dries this is where you want to be, particularly in the late afternoon.
 
Give us a shout if any of these tickle you, we would love to get you out on the river with one of our excellent guides.

Summer Steelhead Report

Summer Steelhead Report

August, September, and October are great months to get out and chase steelhead. the tricky thing is showing restraint when the temps get too high. The Lower Trinity, Klamath, Rogue River offer great steelhead opportunities this time of year. We hope you get out there and skate a Dry and get a few blow ups! It's the best way to fish steelhead. 

A quick note if you are planning a trip to the Trinity:

The Trinity River flows are increasing from 450 cfs (cubic feet per second) to 2,650 cfs between September 1st and 2nd (During Labor Day weekend!). Flows will return to 450 cfs by September 5.
